Hello Eric / All,
	The patch set still needs some cleanups (specially the memory_ranges
code which is a bit convoluted and longish in ppc64 right now). I plan to come
back to it sometime and try a cleaner approach.
	Besides, there are the compat issues (building it 64-bit and 32-bit on
ppc64) that I have to test out and clean up, if required.
	However, I thought it good to have some clean working version out for
scrutiny whilst it gets cleaned up further. 
	We have started working on the kdump support for ppc64 and get them out,
hopefully soon.

Thanks and Regards,
